Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers
August 1 - 4, 2019

Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Studies

The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers is a week-long program that introduces university students preparing for a career in teaching or advocacy to the history of the Holocaust and other genocides. The Warren Fellowship, supported by The Warren Fellowship Fund, is developing a corps of educators who want to learn how to effectively teach about the Holocaust, human rights and genocide. 

The fellowship takes place at Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas each spring. Pre-service teacher educators and graduate students will be selected by a faculty and Museum panel and will be designated as Warren Fellows. 

Once accepted to this prestigious fellowship, participants attend a six–day, expense-paid institute designed to immerse the Fellows in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust, human rights and genocide. Only those applicants who commit to attending the entire Fellowship will be accepted.

Eminent Holocaust, human rights and genocide scholars provide historical and academic content and university and Fellowship faculty and Museum staff provide pedagogical context. 

The Warren Fellowship, initiated in 2003 and supported by the Naomi and Martin Warren Family Foundation, is designed to bring the lessons of the Holocaust into the classroom and community. It is a major component of the Museum’s educational outreach.

During the week, Fellows have the opportunity to meet and work with survivors of the Holocaust and their families. Following the program, Fellows are invited to participate in numerous educational activities and outreach opportunities, including the possibility of study at Yad Vashem in Israel. Students who plan to teach elementary, middle or secondary school or at the university level are encouraged to apply for the Warren Fellowship. We also welcome applicants interested in related work in advocacy.

This prestigious program is by application only. This program is generously supported by The Warren Fellowship Fund, the Naomi and Martin Warren Family Foundation and the Solomon Spector Foundation. We offer special thanks to United Airlines, the official airline of Holocaust Museum Houston.

Applications are available online. Applications must be submitted by 12 a.m., May 15, 2019.
